IND vs IRE 1st T20I Umran Malik to finally debut for India vs Ireland Hardik Pandya says THIS

IND vs IRE T20I: The Indian cricket team is set to play a two-match T20 series on the Ireland tour under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya. The first match of the series is to be played in Dublin on Sunday. In this match, some young players of Team India can get a chance to debut. These include fast bowler Umran Malik. Umran was recently selected in the Indian team for the first time for the five-match T20I series against South Africa. But he did not get a chance to debut in a single match. It is expected that Umran will now get a chance to make his debut. Captain Hardik Pandya has also given his opinion.

‘Selectors will have to talk to Rohit, Kohli and Rahul’

All-rounder Hardik said in a virtual press conference on the eve of the first T20 International, “We want to give opportunities to people but also want to play our best XI. It will be a situation where some caps will be given but with anything we will make sure that we have the best XI. Regarding his captaincy, he said, ‘Earlier also I used to enjoy taking responsibility and now it is the same but now a little more responsibility has come. I have always believed that I have done better after taking responsibility. If I take responsibility for my things and make my own decisions, they are stronger. Cricket is such a game in which it is very important to stay strong during different conditions.

The Indian team is fielding its reserve players in the two-match T20 series against Ireland and Hardik said the “bench strength” that the team has is a good sign for the game in the country. “If a situation arises that we have to send two teams, then we are fortunate that we have enough ‘bench strength’ where we can send players and that will give opportunities to a lot of people,” he said. There is so much talent in India that people never get opportunities. It is always a dream to play for India and it will be really great for him to make that dream come true.
